Poetry from New Zealand

At Reading for Believers, one of the bloggers is posting a series of excerpts from the poetry of James K Baxter.  Start with the linked poem and then browse more recent entries for more poetry and commentary--worth your time!

I really loved the poem from which this is excerpted:

Now I see you conquer age
As the prow of a canoe beats down
The plumes of Tangaroa.

Read the whole thing here: He Waiata mo Te Kare
